Posted: Today at 16:12

Bekkie ,Its quite obvious you do not know the rules here,  NO1 before any cheesecake recipes are passed through here you must send me a made up one for quality control to taste,sometimes we might need 2 just in case were not sure,  If you want my address its not a problem. In future Please follow the rules
